An unspeakable tragedy has wracked several families in Oklahoma, after seven people were found dead in a staged scene.
Jesse McFadden, 39, apparently murdered his three step-children, his wife, and two teenage girls who were visiting his family for a sleepover. McFadden, a previously convicted sex-offender, turned the gun on himself, after killing Holly Guess, 35; Rylee Allen, 17; Michael Mayo, 15; Tiffany Guess, 13; Ivy Webster, 14; and Brittany Brewer, 16.
The bodies were found in separate areas of the woods around McFadden’s property. Police are reportedly unsure exactly when the murders took place. The families of the two girls killed by McFadden attest that they did not know that McFadden was previously convicted of crimes.
“We had a read on him that he was a little weird but we felt comfortable, especially knowing several of our daughter’s friends would go over there all the time and hang out. They would go over there on the weekends. Tiffany would come over here at our house and stay here on the weekends,” Justin Webster said.
